The Charter Challenge.
Hanson-Harding, Brian
Instructor, v109 n6 p44-46 Mar 2000
Describes the advantages of charter schools, which are started by individuals or groups in the community and can set their own educational agendas and goals. More states are passing or expanding charter school laws every year. Benefits include autonomy, site-based management, increased parental involvement, and increased teacher control. Accountability can be a potential problem that accompanies autonomy. (SM)
